How To Make Your Legs Look Longer


Who doesn’t want to be long legged and fabulous?! Girls, I’ve discovered a life hack on how to achieve longed, leaner legs. This discovery was too great to keep to myself, so I knew I had to write up an entire blog post on it!

*Now, before I share my amazing find a quick disclaimer. I am 5’10 (aka a friendly giant) and am short waisted (and therefore long legged). While I may be the last gal on earth who needs her legs to appear longer, I’d never turn away these gems.

Without further ado.. the secret to longer and leaner legs?


A pair of nude pumps (that match your skin tone), with pointed toes. Why? Nude heels visually extend the leg by blending into your skin tone. The higher the heel, the more inches added to your height which will also make your legs look longer. Finally, heels with pointed toes have a lengthening effect. My ‘perfect pair’ of nude pumps are these Sam Edelman beauties featured in this post. I am in love, and they are my new favorite pumps!

I wanted to show y’all the magic of these pumps, so I created a before and after photo of the same outfit with two pairs of shoes! Both photos were taken from the same angle (no deception here!). As you can see, the Sam Edelman pumps work wonders on lengthening my legs!


Outfit Details:

Dress (sold out, similar, love this velvet alternative) | Sweater (sold out, similar under $10) | Heels | Purse (also comes in purple, grey and red, smaller version comes in 5 colors and is $100 less!)| Choker | Lipstick MAC ‘Creme In Your Coffee’

If you’re looking to spoil someone in your life this Christmas – I highly recommend these Sam Edelman pumps. This is my 100% honest, non sponsored opinion! They are surprisingly super comfortable and have been worth every single penny! They also come in black (I will be scooping up a pair of these!) if you’re not into the nude look! Let me know if y’all pick up a pair – I’d love to hear if you love them as much as I do!
